A Note from Lucy:

The Sept. 21st meeting was a luncheon/discussion of our events and goals for this upcoming year.
On a personal note, the meeting was excellent and we accomplished a great deal, thanks to all members who attended and participated.  We had a round table discussion, We now have a book club calendar, a Great Decisions calendar, as well as a chapter meeting calendar for this coming year. I would like to thank the members who attended for their work as well as the energy each has put into continuing the success of our Daytona AAUW group.

Turn Out for Tech Trek!

Last year five middle school girls nominated by AAUW Daytona Beach attended Tech Trek - four at Stetson and one at FAU Jupiter. They had an extraordinary hands-on experience with STEM topics. Each girl's family pays a $50 registration fee for a week-long stay away camp on a college campus. The program costs about $1100 per student which must be raised through personal and corporate donations. We hope to keep the costs to the family low to allow for any girl nominated by their math or science teacher and selected to attend regardless of family circumstances. If you can donate, please do! If you have corporate or business contacts, please contact them yourself, or let us know so we can reach out. This is a once-in-a-lifetime for the girls who attend and we have heard from college students that the contacts they make at the camp last throughout the years.
Donations to the AAUW Florida Supporting Foundation are tax-deductible.

Share Work Smart Online with your Friends and Family


The link is here:   Work Smart Online
Benefits of taking the Work Smart Online course:
  • Improve your negotiation skills – not just for salary but for ALL kinds of negotiations!
  • Learn about the pay gap and hone your skills as an advocate for pay equity
Raise awareness about AAUW’s important work by articulating why negotiation is so important:
  • AAUW’s research on the gender pay gap shows that, one year out of college, women are already paid significantly less than men.
  • Women who work full time take home 80 cents for every dollar a full-time male worker is paid. And over a lifetime, those lost potential earnings add up.
  • While the course include information on the pay gap, the negotiation skill are gender neutral.
The average woman will lose between $400,000 to $1 million over her lifetime due to the pay gap.
Women who are retired also negotiation in many aspects of their lives. The same skills will help them as well.
Let’s empower women so that they can get what they deserve!

J oy Harjo – the current U.S. Poet Laureate and the first Native American to be so honored is a master artist in residence at the Atlantic Center fr the Arts.
Joy Harjo is the first Native American poet to serve in the position—she is an enrolled member of the Muscogee Creek Nation. She was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on May 9, 1951, and is the author of eight books of poetry—including Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings (W. W. Norton, 2015); The Woman Who Fell From the Sky (W. W. Norton, 1994), which received the Oklahoma Book Arts Award; and In Mad Love and War(Wesleyan University Press, 1990), which received an American Book Award and the Delmore Schwartz Memorial Award. Her next book of poems, An American Sunrise, will be published by W. W. Norton in fall 2019. Harjo has also written a memoir, Crazy Brave (W. W. Norton, 2012), which won the 2013 PEN Center USA literary prize for creative nonfiction, as well as a children’s book, The Good Luck Cat (Harcourt, Brace 2000) and a young adult book, For a Girl Becoming (University of Arizona Press, 2009).
“Joy Harjo has championed the art of poetry—‘soul talk’ as she calls it—for over four decades,” Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden said. “To her, poems are ‘carriers of dreams, knowledge and wisdom,’ and through them she tells an American story of tradition and loss, reckoning and myth-making. Her work powerfully connects us to the earth and the spiritual world with direct, inventive lyricism that helps us reimagine who we are.”
Harjo currently lives in her hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and is the nation’s first Poet Laureate from Oklahoma. 

She will have a Reading, followed by Q & A and book signing |
